    Great!  Another thing I have a 99.999999% probability of never ever needing… but that I want to the core of my being.

    The lockpick seems awesome but that saw…I wouldn’t really feel comfortable with that against my finger, I’d just keep imagining, well, my finger getting sawn!

    Better hope your finger doesn’t slip when you’re putting it on.

    Not to be a concern troll, but there are not many situations in unstable countries (presumably with unstable cops) where trying to saw through your handcuffs would be likely to improve matters. All I’m saying is that I hope the rest of your escape plan is really good.

      I doubt the saw is even intended to cut through the cuffs. Its got a handcuff shim in it though (or does the saw act as a shim?). Those work by slipping between the shackle and housing to release the latch and open the cuff. That said almost all hand cuffs worth a shit are guarded against shims (and also hardened to prevent easy sawing). If you’ve ever seen a decent pair of cuffs like law enforcement up close you’ll notice the key has a small extended pin on the back. This goes into a small hole on the body of the cuff to engage an equally small button. It locks to shackle in place for 2 reasons: 1 keep it from moving/tightening any further to prevent injury. 2 preventing the shackle from being opened with a shim. Apparently works pretty good, and and its a common feature approach. But there are more rigorous ways to prevent shim use though.

      So basically these things are for party tricks/escapology.

    • In any case, I’d suggest this is a more of an art project than a serious tool.

        I hardly think its serious in any way, but it could be legitimately useful as far as performance escapes go. Depending on how practical it is for real use.

    A wedding ring for men with tactical pens, and everyday carry kits, and bug out bags, and knife collections, and assault rifles, and concealed carry permits, and matte black hatchets, and shovels with titanium spikes & blades on the end for zombie killing on the way to their cubicles.

    Thanks for telling everyone about this. Now, the next time I’m on a covert op and I get caught, the first thing they’ll do is take my escape ring!

    This is perfect! I’ll be sure to get one of these bad larrys for my next espionage expedition!

    i think a mini manicure set would be more useful, considering the state of the thumb and nail in that photo…

  9. Daniel Sobol says:

    Now why can’t it be in a real size?  If I’m lucky it will fit my left and smaller pinky!

    “. . .while the saw can cut zip-ties, disposable handcuffs, duct tape, rope, and your finger every time you slip it on and off.”

  11. Mental note: take away all prisioner jewelry, painfully if possible.

    A wedding ring that helps you ESCAPE a ball and chain? Novel!

  13.  My regular wedding ring makes me feel so emasculated.

    Well, as James Bond fantasies go, this isn’t completely unreasonably priced or entirely poorly thought-out. (At least it’s well enough designed to look plausible, if one ignores the difficulty of manipulating a blade under those conditions and the fact that many cuffs these days have a mechanism that can be engaged to prevent shimming.)

    TSA ban on all jewelry in 3… 2… 1…

    ” the first thing they’ll do is take my escape ring!”

    Contrary to television and novels, the first thing *any* smart guard should be doing is removing *everything* you are carrying or wearing all the way down to hairclips, nose rings, tampons and any other hardware strewn about your body.  Clothes too, all of them, down to underwear and issuing you only the most basic items needed for “decency” and those should be flimsy, on the order of a paper hospital gown so they can’t be easily used as a garrotte or climbing rope and unsuitable for normal wear so you’ll stand out  a mile away if you do escape as no normal person would be caught dead in that get up.

    Be thorough or or don’t bother.

    Quick and dirty?  Make them take off one shoe or boot.  Try running in *that* combination.

    Cue the TSA removing everyone’s wedding bands…

    I would guess that there are very few single-lock handcuffs in actual use.
    Most are double locking.

    Unlawful arrest sucks and all, but getting shot for trying to escape probably sucks more…
